Palin legal defense fund

Seems like being a politician in Alaska nowadays automatically calls for a fund to collect donations to pay legal fees. I wonder what that says about the quality of politicians we are blessed with right now? Or maybe it says even more about how sadly polarized our political landscape has become. Instead of any attempts at statesmanship or compromise, we hurl accusations and insults at each other, accuse each other of illegal activities and then we complain that those same politicians aren’t doing their job because they are spending so much time defending themselves. Either they are all really crooked and we should be ashamed we ever elected them…OR… we should demand the return of civility to our political discourse so that government can actually work again.
